I wouldn’t class these as cooking but they are a great festive activity to do with the kids. That being said if you have OCD tendencies when sprinkles and silver balls enter your kitchen maybe this one isn’t for you. I made ‘em a good few days ago and still keep coming across those pesky little 1980s trifle topper ballbearings!
100g white chocolate
Dash of green food gel
Decorations of your choice
Don’t pipe too thinly or space your branches too far apart of they will just be too delicate and fall apart when picked up. A thick layer works well
Gel colours work better then food colouring as they are thicker and more vivid. Regular food colour can change the texture of the chocolate too
Melt your chocolate
Add the gel to whichever shade you like
Pour into a piping bag
Lay your pretzel stick on grease proof paper and pipe back and forth in to the shape of a tree
Decorate and leave to set for about 30 mins!
